    Me and jsalin have written “ipxgw” which acts as a gateway between real IPX network and DOSBox clients. It tunnels IPX traffic to UDP and back.

    It has been tested with DOOM and Death Rally but should work with any IPX application.┬áDepending on your IPX stack you may need to add “-r” command-line switch to use Novell’s raw IPX stack instead of LLC encapsulation.

    Also, I have successfully used SSH tap tunnels and bridging to connect multiple vintage computers to the same Ethernet broadcast domain. Ipxgw and layer 2 tunneling can be combined; players on real hardware can be tunneled and DOSBox users can join the same game via ipxgw.

    Fight the loneliness with this one ­čÖé
